a. Revocation by the donor

What if a donor, who has already executed an EPA, later changes his/her mind and wants to revoke the EPA?  What does the donor have to do to carry out the revocation?


Section 13 of the Enduring Powers of Attorney Ordinance (Cap.501 of the Laws of Hong Kong) expressly allows a donor to revoke an EPA:


  • when the donor is mentally capable; or 
  • if the donor recovers from his/her mentally incapacity, makes an application to the Court for the revocation and the Court makes an order confirming the revocation.

This means that as long as the donor is mentally capable, he/she can change his/her mind and revoke the EPA at anytime.
